not a broker, but my boss became a loan originator after passing the ny bar/practicing. has since been helllllllla successful

Why not do both?

Because I strongly dislike practicing law. It is exhausting and don’t want to endure that type of stress on a daily basis for the rest of my life. Since leaving my firm when covid hit, my family says I am a new person. That coupled with the fact that I am 4 months pregnant, I think it’s time I made a career change.

Any Accenture 🐠 willing to give me a referral to the Summer analyst program?


I was due for a promotion but then covid hit, and during the peak of layoffs/furloughs, I was given the run-around that we have agency wide promotion freezes, etc. Over the past month, a handful of people have been promoted. I know everyone's situation is different but I can't help feeling snubbed. How do I know whether they are genuinely trying to promote me and can't, versus them stringing me along for as long as possible? I dont want it to come to having to bring another offer to the table..
